Program Overview

Dry Run is an annual workshop designed to provide practical experience for new admission professionals who are currently employed by a college or university. The program provides training in relevant basic skills and discussion of pertinent issues and situations encountered in the admission profession.

Participants will be led by a volunteer faculty of seasoned college admission professionals from a variety of secondary and post-secondary institutions. Dry Run faculty members consist of SACAC members that are leaders in our profession that have displayed multiple years of experience in a variety of key subject areas that are relevant to admissions and success in our field.

In addition, participants will break out in small group mentoring sessions with faculty members. These sessions allow for more in-depth discussion, question and answer, and application of the material presented in conference sessions. The program culminates with participants giving a short “dry run” presentation on their institutions.
